HOW BOWA WAS CREATED

BOWA was born when three young men joined their inspiration and passion for sea, food and simple Mediterranean lifestyle. The cabanas structure came from what Sipan island could give: fig, pine, oak, cypress and beech trees served the purpose. Paved stone was taken out, while the beach and the bay were cleaned, and shaped. It took months of devoted and diligent work, lots of creativity and one skilful carpenter.

Three man, three energies, one passion!

“BOWA is an Ocean kid!”
“We are drifted to the Sea, it is a magic connection, as if it was a mermaid call.”
“Once we came to the little bay we knew we will settle on that very rock.”
